The curious thing about technology is that if you’re not ahead, you’re already falling behind…and it’s no secret that the mobility industry has struggled to keep pace, burdened with systems that are siloed, complex to navigate, and, quite simply, not fit for the digital age.
Sure, we may all suffer from a little “tech neck” from time to time, but we can all agree that technology advancements are a wonderful thing. Technology has revolutionized how we move talent, helping us recruit more effectively, manage risks, provide responsive support to assignees, and estimate costs more accurately than ever before. Mobile technology tools have allowed us to engage with employees at every point of their move through systems that are both convenient and highly customized to their needs. So, are these mobility technology platforms effectively taking the place of the relocation counselor? Not quite. In fact, we’re discovering that the opposite rings true: the faster the pace of technology, the more important humans become.
In 2020, virtually every industry as we know it had to take a new approach to the way they operated while maintaining productivity that ensured the safety of employees. Two years later, these necessary changes have paved the way for dramatic transformations that impact how we work, where we work, and how we engage with our coworkers. These revolutionary adaptions to the way we work have ultimately driven the overall success of businesses during the pandemic.
